CHAS Dingle has become pregnant by Paddy Kirk but will she keep the baby?
Here’s everything you need to know about her dilemma and the shocking discovery she makes about her unborn child…
ITV Emmerdale’s Chas Dingle was given the shock of her life after learning she was pregnant
When did Chas discover she was pregnant?
Chas first suspected she was pregnant during a trip to the doctor’s surgery in February.
Aaron Livesy’s mum only made the visit for a check on her sprained ankle, but was reminded that she had missed her second contraceptive injection.
Despite thinking her first injection was still in her system, the doctor informed her that wasn’t the case and a pregnancy test later confirmed her worst fears.
Chas dreaded telling boyfriend Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt) that she was carrying his child – but the barmaid didn’t need to when he overheard her telling her mum that her test was positive.
Will Chas Dingle keep the baby?
Chas made it clear from the get-go that she didn’t intend to keep the baby, though her desire wasn’t shared by Paddy.
When Chas found out the truth – that Paddy actually wants to keep the baby – she was shocked.
There was further disappointment for the vet when Chas told him that his true feelings changed nothing – she still wanted an abortion.
Having made an appointment with a clinic to see her options, Paddy told her he’d support her in whatever she chose to do.
